Bakelite is a polymer made up of the monomers phenol and formaldehyde. This phenol-formaldehyde resin is a thermosetting polymer.

We cannot deny the presence of polymers in our lives. We are surrounded by objects, most of which in some way or the other have a polymer associated with them. The ease of molding polymers into different shapes and their relatively low cost of production has been the main reason for their universal usage. As such, Bakelite is one of the commercially manufactured polymers that we witness in our daily lives.

BAKELITE sheet is also known as Hylam sheet, Tufnol sheet, Norplex Sheet, Micarta Sheet,Synthetic Resin Bonded Paper Base Sheet (SRBP) Phenolic Sheet, Fabric Sheet, Laminated Sheet, Synthetic Resin Bonded Fabric base Sheet (SRBF).

BAKELITE sheet are hard, dense material made by applying heat and pressure to layers of Cellulose Paper or Fabric cloth impregnated with synthetic resin (Phenolic Resin). When heat and pressure are applied Polymerization transforms the layers into Thermosetting Industrial Laminates.

BAKELITE sheet is produced in different grades with various additives to meet diverse Mechanical,Electrical and Thermal Requirements. Some of the Grades manufactured with comparative are Given below.
